Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Is there anyone who likes ALL Periods 60's-90's Dead?

I am, or was, a fan of all when I was going to the shows. Now that I'm an old fuck with a 16 yo son, I don't have the time to like everything. TOO MUCH MUSIC and TOO LITTLE TIME! So I tend to listen to what I like most. Call it a rut, but it's a rut a like.

"Now that I'm an old fuck with a 16 yo son"

So for those of us who have a 22 year old son and a 24 year old daughter........

That makes some of the more austere members of the forum fossils.

And just for a reference point I guess we call William Tell "Methuselah"?

But getting back to the original question. For me '66-'79 works very well. I can find plenty to enjoy from '90-'95, along with some '80-'82.

But '83-'89 are the "Lost Years" and I have struggled to get any traction listening to that stuff. You'd think that I would have been conditioned to all that tinkling on the keys by Donna's caterwauling, but I digress.

Along with Jim's recommendation a few posts earlier and this one, looks like tomorrow's line-up is set.

Started listening to Jim's TDIH but I'm about done at the rock pile for the day so it becomes YDIH for tomorrow.

So far it doesn't suck.

that MSG run was pretty damn fine from the standpoint of these listening ears. I actually a tix for the 9/18 show (and the 20th if I remember correctly, but it might have been the 17th) but was unable to attend due to external circumstances. The concept of "kicking myself" still is very prevalent in this deadhead's thought process.

glad you are enjoying it :) one of my favorite (if not actual favorite) Morning Dew's of all time - talk about depth of soul (and pain) in Jerry's ravaged voice - one of his finest moments

peace

"Now that I'm an old fuck with a 16 yo son"

OUCH! indeed

my daughter is 33 and my son will soon(Cinco de Mayo) turn 28

my grandson will be 12 in November

you know what that makes me in dog years...DEAD!

And just to keep this thread on track...

Yes, I like the period from 1965-1995. Do I love it all? NO, but I do like most of it. Can I find something enjoyable from any year...and even from any show? YES.

No fair. I didn't start till I was 47. :)

Has it been established that William Tell is the Methuselah of the group?

Do you remember the "let there be light" story? Tell flipped the switch.

Biblicly, Methuselah was a real old Hebrew, 900 yrs old or so. Noah's grandpa.

More recently, its the name given to a Bristlecone Pine in the White Mountains of Ca.. The oldest, non-colony organism we currently know of. About 4,800 years old.

Very cool. I live in the northern ca. redwoods and have a few favorites with names too. When you get confused, hug a Redwood.;)
